A Baby Shower

A couple of weeks ago I got to go visit one of my best friends, Christina. We have been friends since 7th grade...about 14 years!! We have so many inside jokes, mostly from 7th grade, that we still talk about and we even use our "secret codes" whenever the situation calls for it! Her and her husband are expecting their 2nd baby boy soon, so some of her friends gave her a diaper shower.


The hostesses with Christina in the middle (in pink).

One of her sisters, her mom and Christina.

The beautiful milkglass punch bowl and cups.

We even got to use milkglass snack plates!

Look at the cute diaper cake and real cake that the girls made.

The party favors. They really went all out on the decorations and special touches.

A cute blanket her mom had monogrammed for new baby, Logan Jameson.

Back at the house, cute big brother Jay was eating lunch and hamming it up for the camera. He is such a great baby!
**In other exciting news, Zach is going to be a big brother! I'm going to be an aunt again!

I read yesterday where your sister-in-law was expecting again!! How exciting. Now I must tell you...your friend's mother looks like she could be a sister. I thought maybe your labeled the picture wrong. Of course I love the name LOGAN!! There weren't too many when I chose it.

I like the milk glass punch bowl- I've never seen one before. I've been looking for a milk glass pedestal cake stand. The Farm Chicks Show is coming up this summer again near us and I'm hoping to find one there.

What a beautiful shower! I just found your blog, and love it! The chalkboard in the pantry is a fabulous idea!

Jessica said...

Aww, it looks like you had a good time!

I have to admit something to you...I have become a little bit obsessed with your blog. Is that creepy? lol...The past couple of days I've just really been in the mood to jump headfirst into decorating my home. I actually went through and looked through a lot of your old posts and pictures just for inspiration and decorating ideas. I'm kind of new at the whole thing! But I just want to thank you for your blog and your creativity. You have truly inspired me!:-)
